    Thanks for the thorough answer as now I can sound totally geeky by calling it a TRS connector. I might blow some people away by that terminology!

    Again, thanks.

Hi,

A TRS connector (tip, ring, sleeve) also called an audio jack, phone plug, jack plug, stereo plug, mini-jack, or mini-stereo, and more recently MP3 jack is a common audio connector. It is cylindrical in shape, typically with three contacts, although sometimes with two (a TS connector) or four (a TRRS connector).

So, you are correct. Different names but same stuff.

Let me know, if need further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Tv hooked up to computer. connected audio cabe to vga audio in. still no sound. help.


I'll need a bit more information on your issue to help you first:
1.) You said: "trying to get sound on the tv to the computer". -- Did you perhaps mean that you're trying to get the audio which comes out of your computer to "play" on your TV?

2.) If I assume correctly, then you have the audio cable connected to the wrong place on the computer.. and possibly on the wrong place on the TV. If you are indeed trying to get the audio from your computer to play through the speakers on your TV, then you need to:

(this is also assuming you're using a "headphone jack-sized" plug on one end, with the other end being the old-style "RCA" left and right channels.. [Left = white; Red = right])

Firstly, the 'headphone jack"-style end of the audio cable needs to be plugged into the "audio out" or "headphones" jack. Sometimes the audio jacks on a computer are color-coded. If this is the case, the green jack is the one you want.

Next, the other end (which again I'm assuming are the left / right channels -- [white / red plugs]) needs to be plugged into the "audio in" on the TV which matches with the same input as your VGA cable is plugged into. Once the cable is hooked up in this way, you should be able to hear all audio coming from your computer on your TV's speakers.

Please let me know if I'm assuming incorrectly on what you're trying to accomplish with the audio. -- I hope I was helpful! Please let me know if you have any other questions!

Denon 1908 no sound


Try inserting a headphone plug into the headphone jack and remove it. Sometimes these units have a problem in the headphone jack where the unit thinks there are headphones plugged in even when there isn't. This cuts all the audio output to the speaker jacks. If you never plan on using the headphone jack, you can also go inside of unit and unplug the cable that goes to the headphone jack board. Just make sure you unplug the unit before you do this, the plug is close to the main power switch.

Jbl roxy over ear headphones ref 430 need to install new cord. how do i open cans?


Hello.
Headphone speakers stop functioning properly when the wireconnections to the speaker are broken. This problem often develops when theheadphone cord gets jerked while being worn. The solder connection might alsodetach over time if it was not properly manufactured. The wire can bereconnected to the speaker with a soldering iron to repair the headphone. Beaware, though, that headphones are not designed to be user maintained in thisfashion. In some cases, it is difficult to get to the speaker due to the casingdesign.
Instructions and tools needed
Screwdriver or butter knife (depending on headphone design),Soldering iron, Electrical solder
1 Plug in the solderingiron. It takes a few minutes for it to get warm enough to be used.
2 Unscrew the screws holdingthe headphone casing over the speakers. This step applies only to models thatuse screws in the casing.
3 Insert the end of the butterknife into the seam on the headphone ear pieces. Pry the two halves of thecasing apart. This step is performed only on headphone models that do not usescrews in the casing.
4 Touch the tip of thesoldering iron to the electrical solder. A small drop should melt onto the tipof the iron.
5 Touch the tip of the soldering iron to the end of thedetached speaker wire inside the headphone speaker cavity. Try to get an evencoating of solder around the exposed metal end of the wire. The soldersolidifies on the wire once the soldering iron is removed.
6 Touch the end of the wire tothe solder on the metal tab attached to the speaker.
7 Touch the tip of the solderingiron to where the wire and tab connect. The heat of the soldering iron meltsthe solder on the wire and tab together. This repairs the broken connectionbetween the wire and speaker.
8 Replace the speaker casingonto the headphone. It should snap back into place for models without screws Thanks.

I need to connect a surround sytem to my tv but cannot find an audio out on it


Depending on the TV you have and the surround sound system you can use the following:
An optical out cable.
Headphone jack to headphone jack (a cable with a 2.5mm headphone jack on both ends) you then plug this into the headphone jack in the TV and the other end into the audio in jack in your surround sound system.
You can also use a standard scart lead to plug into your TV and surround sound system.

Speakers have no sound


Please check the below mentioned things :
Verify the AC power cord is plugged into the wall outlet. Turn the VOLUME knob on the right speaker until you hear a click sound. An LED will light next to the knob when the power is ON. Turn the VOLUME knob clockwise to raise the volume. Check volume level on the computer sound card or alternate audio source device, and set at mid-level. Check plug connections on the audio source. Make sure the signal cables are inserted firmly into the correct jacks. Make sure the 3.5mm stereo cable is connected and fully inserted into the "line-out," "audio-out," or the headphone jack of the audio source. Test the speakers on another audio device. Remove the 3.5mm stereo cable from the audio source device and connect it to "line-out," "audio-out," or the headphone jack of another audio source.
And if in in case u r unable to get it working ..
Replace the speakers ..

Where can I purchase the Audio Video Connection for my dvd player I want to hook it up to my TV but can't find the correct cable Thank you Sandy


For the COBY TF-DVD7500, the video is carried on a single RCA plug cable. You can make due with a composite video cable (with three RCA plugs on each end) or get an RCA cable. The audio output can either be digital audio (which uses a special coax cable) or a headphone connector (analog audio).I believe the headphone jack is a 3.5 mm connector. If you use a composite video cable to your TV, you can connect the red and white plugs to an adapter (3.5 mm M to 2 RCA F). Then the TV speakers will get the audio track; otherwise you can use the DVD player speakers or the digital audio out.

I hope this helps.

I'm trying to connect my mac to our lg tv. Visuals are fine, but the audio is not working. I'm using one of those belkin cables that has a white and red ouputs on one end and one for the headphone jack....


maybe the earphone plug on the MAC is not functional ...so try the one in the back ...the one for the speakers....if it is still not working ...just use a separate cable for the audio cause in this case the cable is not ok ...and just use a cable that has a 3.5 jack on one end to get signal from the audio output (no important is from headphones or the rear output) ..and in the other end to have a RCA plug just like the one fro audio ..
Here is an example for what kinda cable you need...(if you have some old cables you can make one by attaching a Jack 3.5 to an old RCA cable ..
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Belkin-3-5mm-Jack-Cable-White/dp/B0002AFT7M

Only that if you have only one RCA input on tv ..you only need a mono rca ..

Plug for pc speakers wire


To use the speakers on the TV when you connect to a PC, get a 3.5 mm M/M audio cable (it may be called a patch cable or audio aux cable) and connect it to the PC audio in port to the left of the composite A/V ports (that's the group with 3 RCA jacks yellow (video)/red(R audio)/white (L audio)). The other end goes into the computer's line out (speaker out) port - which is generally colored green. Otherwise your regular computer speakers will play the audio.

If you want the TV's audio to output to external speakers, use the headphone jack (sometimes labels Phones, again a 3.5 mm plug) or a set of speakers/receiver that takes an optical audio connection. The optical audio jack is between the two coax connectors. Please note using the headphone jack will force the internal speakers off.

I hope this helps.

I have a samsung NC10. I have connected to my TV via the PC cable. I can see the screen but here no sounds. I have connected the red/yellow/white audio cable to the tv. It has a jack plug on the other end....


The cable you are using is a rca audio/video cable. The colors translate to:
  • red=audio,right
  • white=audio,left
  • yellow=composite video
Your laptop headphone input uses a ⅛′ (3.5 mm) mono and stereo (TRS).

You need a Stereo 3.5mm mini phone plug male to 2 RCA female connectors.

Sony bravia to my P/C


You need to wire up the audio from the computer.
The 15 pin cable is only the video, next to the input on the tv should be a red and white phono connector which should say audio or line in, get a cable that has a headphone type jack on one end and 2 phono red and white plugs, connect the headphone jack into the back of the pc, should be the green audio out where you would usually connect pc speakers, then the phono plugs into the back of the tv and insert them into the phono ports on the back of the tv that say line or audio in. Turn the TV to PC and thats it.

hope this helps
